Minnesota will become the 22nd U.S. State to legalize medical marijuana, albeit with an interesting caveat. Smoking will not be an allowable method of medicating.
Gov. Mark Dayton signed legislation that sets up a medical marijuana program with tight controls over qualifying conditions and the way it is administered. People won’t be able to smoke marijuana legally or access it in leaf form.
“I pray it will bring to the victims of ravaging illnesses the relief they are hoping for,” Dayton said in a written statement.
